Why Sound Design
It’s no secret that sound design is essential in making an impactful video. The right music, along with other audio effects can turn your regular video into something truly unique and special. But what is it exactly? And how do you use it properly? Let’s get started. What Is Sound Design?: It helps craft a mood or atmosphere for a film or show and allows viewers to immerse themselves into it.
By creating a specific setting and scenario with appropriate sounds, you allow people watching to envision their own picture of events as they watch on screen. This is called suspension of disbelief; so long as your audience believes they are seeing actual events unfold before them, they will be more invested in what happens next.
The Importance of Mood and Feel
So why is music so important? As you can see from our expertise page, we focus on music beds, sound design and more. Well, it’s because your viewers are human; they aren’t only using their eyes but also their ears when watching a video. How do you want them to feel? What are you trying to convey? A good bed of custom music that fits your project will really help set an emotional tone for what you have in mind.
So as you’re creating your storyboard or script, think about what mood or feeling you want your video to convey. Don’t just rely on your words; use music and sound design too. How will it complement your visuals? How do you want viewers to feel when they watch it?
Why a Music Bed
Creating a scene is hard enough when you’re going in blind; throw in custom music and you have a whole new set of parameters to consider. Luckily, we’ve had tons of experience putting music beds together for our clients. In today’s post, we break down everything there is to know about custom music beds so that your next project can sound as professional as possible.
When looking for custom music beds for your next project, it’s important to consider what you’re aiming for and what mood you want viewers to be in. For example, if you have a documentary that’s meant to be sad or gloomy, you might not want songs with a ton of brass or instrumentation that makes people feel uplifted.
Additionally, there are different kinds of music beds. Do you want something that works for a montage? Are you looking for more of a general atmosphere bed? What style of music do you want your viewers to hear? These are all important questions that can affect your selection process.
Audio Production Services
It’s frustrating when the music used for your video is recognized from that of another video. Sometimes, this isn’t an issue, but for higher-end productions: custom music is essential. It’s more affordable than you think.
This process immerses the viewer into a total immersed experience. Not only is the action on the screen seen, but also heard. This doesn’t happen organically and must be recorded separately.
Combining multi-tracks of sound assets is no small task. The music, foley, sound design and on-set recordings must all be mixed into a unified experience for those watching-and listening.
